RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Hello

Hello, I would like to introduce myself on this forum of yours. I Saint Nicholas, better known as Santa Claus, have come to see the world as it is today. As a Saint I am not really acquainted with the current world, but I am very intrigued with the Internet, and since I am the saint of gift giving, I shall come and spread my cheer throughout these forums.

Merry Christmas!

I'll try to answer that as best as I can:

You see I'm a Saint, I'm a revered person that is dead. The only reason I can access this Internet is because God allows it. In other words, I cannot sleep with someone because I don't live in your material world.

Merry Christmas!

I don't believe in Santa.

Do you know what it's like to be loved by Death?

Satan isn't nice. He lures people into Hell with the things of the world.

Pfft, of course you'd say that. Lucifer's awsome, he tempts people and loves to party. Hell if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't even have the seven deadly sins, just imagine how boring life would be without them.

Welcome Hi weswamy. Next time try using a proxy server.

I highly suggest Mobb Deep's albums The Infamous and Hell on Earth, if you have not listened to it yet.

Suicidal-kun, I believe you are to entwined with the material. I would suggest the nearest priest.

And I assure all of you, I am not Weswammy. I am Saint Nicholas, Saint of gift giving.

Merry Christmas!

Nah, I'm good, going to priests really isn't my thing.

Help what? There's nothing wrong with my life, I'm just living it the way I want, and if that's a sin, then fuck whoever says it is, and if that's god, then fuck god.

I'm sorry, I believe my head is still connected to my body. Though I am dead, you could argue this point.

I wasn't even try to debate you. I was just referencing Harry Potter. If you really WERE Santa you wouldn't we so goddamn reverent and you would just tell me about all the coal I'm getting in my stalking.
